eKatab is a PHP interface to an ePub document to allow viewing of your created ibooks, ePub and zipped files with a
META-INF/container.xml file pointing to an ofp doc.
It takes 2 arguments, the ePub file and the prefix to the ePub root in no standard zip file layout.
Everything is done automatically once the classes is loaded.
- access to your ebooks files with the URL path_info
- All links have been fixed on the fly
- bookmark-able links with REST-like design (GET only)
- even works with ePub files purchased from the iTunes book Store (as long as they're not encrypted)
- works with old o'really iPhone app books (.ipa file type), these will need to use the prefix. The ebook files are in
ePub format. The prefix must contain a 'META-INF/container.xml' file or it will fail, ipa files are zips, not too
hard to figure out the prefix
- This is still a work in progress and hasn't really been touched in a few years, but it will display your ePub files
in a browser.
- The REST.class.php is still unpolished, it does the job for this package, but I plan in completing it in the future
when I get the time
- if you're an educational institution feel free to use and modify
